Why the fuss over Sinclair statement?

first_imgSinclair’s statement mentions “… the troubling trend of irresponsible, one-sided news stories …” and adds, “The sharing of biased and false news has become all too common on social media.” Continuing, the Sinclair statement notes that some media outlets publish fake stories without checking facts first, which gives a platform to some media members to espouse personal bias. Sinclair emphasizes that it’s their responsibility to pursue and report the truth and that they believe “… truth is neither politically ‘left nor right.’ ” So, where’s the controversy? Even a group of 16 political scientists and legal scholars in an essay published in the March 2018 edition of “Science” magazine (as referenced in the March 8issue of “The Atlantic”) acknowledges, “The rise of fake news highlights the erosion of long-standing institutional bulwarks against misinformation in the internet age.” Their research underscores Sinclair’s stated commitment to factual, responsible reporting.Finally, the writer uses his correspondence as a partisan departure to attack President Trump’s tweets. Yet, nowhere in Sinclair’s apolitical statement are conservative or liberal beliefs addressed.Neither WRGB nor Liz Bishop are deserving of the writer’s criticism.

This letter captured my attention and led me to look up Sinclair’s supposedly objectionable statement, which subsequently left me perplexed as to the writer’s outrage.last_img read more
